The Must List

From the November 11th, 2005 Issue

''Wizard,'' ''Warriors,'' and 8 other things we love this week

The Must List: November 11, 2005

DVD
1. 'THE WIZARD OF OZ'
There's no place like home...to watch every minute of this beyond-lavish three-disc collection that celebrates the original road movie. Review >

TV
2. 'THE COLBERT REPORT'
He's unctuous, fatuous, and pretentious — a typical TV pundit. The Daily Show vet captures the hair-sprayed vapidity of those who grin and spin. Q&A >

POP CULTURE
3. THE SPORTS FAN VOODOO KIT
Includes a doll, a set of pins, and a 64-page booklet. We have to ask: Was it Chicago's pitching — or were White Sox fans using that old black magic?

MUSIC
4. DIANE REEVES
She supplies the lush jazz vocals in Good Night, and Good Luck — and can be seen in the Billie Holiday tribute show Billie & Me.

MUSIC
5. 'THE LEGEND OF JOHNNY CASH'
If Walk the Line makes you want to listen to more of the Man in Black (and it will), start with this swell career-spanning CD.

BOOKS
6. 'THE LINE OF BEAUTY,' BY ALAN HOLLINGHURST
Now in paperback: the Booker Prize-winning novel that uses the experiences of a young gay man to explore the bitter hypocrisy and frantic excess of Thatcher-era England. Review >

MUSIC
7. 'I BELIEVE TO MY SOUL'
Listen to it because Ann Peebles will remind you why it's called ''soul'' music. Buy it because a portion of the proceeds goes to Katrina recovery.

DVD
8. 'HART TO HART'
We loved this '80s series for its gritty, realistic portrayal of a millionaire crime-busting couple. Season 1 is now on DVD. Q&A >

POP CULTURE
9. 'THE WARRIORS'
Based on the 1979 cult-fave movie, Rockstar's street-brawling videogame is chock-full of bone-crunching goodness.

MOVIE
10. 'PARADISE NOW'
Palestinian director Hany Abu-Assad's riveting indie thriller asks us to consider what turns normal young men into suicide bombers. Review >
